Laser Technology


Laser technology is used in dentistry to remove cavities, teeth whitening, reshape gums and to harden boding materials used in fillings.


What is laser technology?

Laser technology refers to the use of technologically advanced lasers to perform certain dental procedures.

Which dental procedures can laser dentistry be used for?

Laser technology can be used for cavity removal, teeth whitening, gum reshaping, and to harden bonding materials used in fillings. In addition, lasers can be used in periodontal care to remove bacteria from periodontal pockets. How do lasers for dental services work? Dental lasers emit targeted light that delivers quick pulses of heat energy to the treatment area. Various wavelengths are used depending on the type of tissue being treated.

What are the advantages of using lasers for dentistry?

Surgical lasers are far more precise and accurate than traditional dental treatments and allow our dental team to conserve as much bone and tooth as possible. Lasers help to minimize both bleeding and swelling following a surgical procedure.

Since laser technology is more comfortable than manual methods, it can, in many cases, eliminate the need for local anaesthetic, reducing the total time of your appointment. Also, eliminating the need for local anaesthetic, means that our dental team is often able to perform procedures that used to require separate appointments, together in the same appointment.
